The operation performed to correct the incompatibilities between the upper and lower jaws is called corrective jaw operations. The medical name for it is orthognathic surgery. These surgeries are performed due to the biting disorders often related to underdevelopment or overgrowth of one of the jaws. Prior to surgery, orthodontic specialists must apply dental braces to prepare the teeth for surgery and make them compatible with each other. This treatment can be started from the age of 12 years once permanent teeth have emerged.
